Chiropractic is a manual discipline whereby the practitioner actively diagnoses and mechanically resolves disorders of the musculoskeletal system. As such, there are a great many benefits to be had by athletes across a wide range of sports and activities from undergoing a course of chiropractic therapy.
At the Fairlee Wellbeing Centre, our chiropractors in Clapham use range of skills, styles and chiropractic techniques that have been independently proven to resolve many commonly occurring injuries associated with athletic activity. We aim to deliver long lasting benefits for our patients using chiropractic methodology which draws on years of hard work and experience from our dedicated chiropractic team.
Injuries associated with Running
Morning joggers, weekend warriors and marathon runners alike run the same risk – repeated running on hard surfaces can lead to a whole host on recurring problems and chronic pain in the feet, shoulders and lower back as well as more long term conditions like plantar fasciitis. These problems can be exacerbated by a poorly aligned core and poor running technique, especially when this is sustained over a number of years.
Whilst perfect alignment is near impossible for most people, chiropractic therapy can address structural problems and postural deficiencies and even prevent these injuries occurring in the future. Our practitioners can implement real changes including personalised adjustments, posture correction and rehabilitative therapy. By focusing on the function of muscles and joints, rather than simply trying to alleviate pain, we can deal with injuries proactively and implement long-lasting improvements in the way you run.
Our chiropractors in Clapham can also assess the way you run and suggest improvements to your posture and running technique.
